What I want to accomplish

  • Fuse and temper the crushed glass,
  • Compare the washed versus unwashed, and float versus cast,
  • Polish the resulting slugs,
  • Drop test.

What I've done

I ran the crushed and washed blown glass, and the unwashed, de-silvered float glass through the following profile in the kiln:

Blown:

Float:

It seems that washing through a sieve is probably a good idea to remove all the very fine glass and any contamination.

What I want to accomplish next time

  • Polish the resulting slugs,
  • Drop test,
  • Wash both types of glass,
  • Use the same amount of glass in the same container,
  • Experiment with fluxes.
